You can not import your tax information from last year into this years tax return.  You will have to have a new account for your tax return as you will not be filing jointly.

 

Have you correctly described your filing status for last year? If you filed married filing jointly then your husband would have to file using the same status.

If you used Turbo Tax last year you should start a brand new account for yourself and not transfer from last year.  Online is only good for 1 return.  But you can use the same email address for 5 accounts.   How to start another return in the Online version
